Merit Badge Counselors
Merit Badge Counselor, consider being one! In January and Feburary we will be hosting a Merit Badge College.
Our leadership has been doubling up and in many cases are over taxed. We need your help.
Please consider becoming a merit badge counselor, it costs nothing, but the process of becoming a merit badge counselor is painless, but can take 4-6 weeks for approval so we need to know soon!
As a merit badge counselor, your mission is to join fun with learning. You are both a teacher and mentor as the Scout works on a merit badge and learns by doing. Your hands-on involvement could inspire a Scout to develop a lifelong hobby, pursue a particular career, or become an independent, self-supporting adult. You don’t need to be an expert, but willing to learn and teach! All new merit badge counselors will receive training and support.
Please contact Rod Pfannenstiel or Denise Powley for any questions! Rmpfann@verizon.net
Take your pick -
Merit badges shown in bold italics are Eagle-required merit badges are the most in demand thus we need more merit badge counselors – please consider choosing one of these in addition to any others you have interest in.

Baden-Powell thought for the day:
The object of the patrol method is not so much saving the Scoutmaster trouble as to give responsibility to the boy.
